What To Do With Your Pumpkin Guts?! #GLADgruesome

Each year around Halloween we get together with all the aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents and we do our annual Pumpkin Carving Party together. We have dinner, drinks and then we start laying down the tarps on the table and we have the kids pick out their stencil they want to use for their pumpkin.

With seven kids carving pumpkins, things are expected to get a little messy and as much as I love pumpkin, I am not a fan of their guts. I don't mind getting them out of the pumpkin, I think it's just the smell that bugs me. And with more than a couple pumpkins being carved at the same time, you can see how this would be a problem for me.

This year, we were asked to participate in the Glad Gruesome Challenge. Glad sent us their new Glad OdourGuard Compostable Bags along with a compostable bin and a gift card to pick out a couple pumpkins. These new bags neutralizes odours in the home so that you can leave whatever you want to dispose in them and leave them on your counter without having to deal with the smell.

This is exactly what we did. We started carving our pumpkins and put all of our waste in the bags. Once they were in the bags and tied up we then put them in the compostable bin and waited a few days before checking it out. While we waited, I have to say I completely forgot about it. It was left on my kitchen counter and because there was no smell coming from the bags or bin, it didn't bother me that  I had it sitting on my kitchen counter.

I've never been one to save compost, I always thought by doing so there would be a smell left in your home or wherever you kept it, but now that I have used  and was successful with the Glad Compostable Bags I'll definitely be trying it out again for our garden next Spring!
